ha.. Dropped down yesterday at Sinclar to $3.459 a gallon for unleaded plus..Believe it or not regular unleaded is .10 cents a gallon higher in Iowa.

BP gas is usually .02 cents lower per gallon. But I'm not driving across town to save .02 cents a gallon.

I've been boycotting BP since the Gulf spill; bought it just once, on the Indiana Toll Road, because it's what there was.

Gas has gone down since this morning..it's now $3.429 for mid-grade. Which is a 10% Ethanol blend

Lowest prices reported in Iowa for the past 36 hours for mid-grade gasoline..

It is known Spain is a bargain for gas. But then there are differences: Here we don't have some taxes they have in other regions, like the so-called healthcare eurocent, and this explains why Huesca has the cheapest gas of all Spain (Excluding the Canaries). And then, it happened to 95 petrol to be cheaper than diesel:
Diesel: €1.347/l ($6.580/gal)
95 petrol: €1.343/l ($6.561/gal)

Unleaded mid-grade which is a 10& Ethanol blend is now at $3.299 a gallon in most of Cedar Rapids.

That's down about .50 cents a gallon in the last two months.

I've been driving in the USA since September 1969. When I started driving in Cincinnati Ohio back then regular gas was about .32 cents a gallon.

Here's a chart with US average fuel prices for the last 5 years.

That's about $ 2 today, taking inflation into account.

Not true in 2008: gas started going up that spring, was over $4.00 a gallon here that summer - hence several months before the election - started going down during the fall and kept going down after the election. It was under $2.00 around here that winter. Because the economy had crashed and demand was down.

The only reason the Republicans are able to make the gas-has-doubled-under-Obama argument is because it was very low in January 2009, when he took office.

Who has the most expensive fuel prices OF ALL TIME?

For East Asia, I think Hong Kong is the most expensive

Latest oil pricing information at Shell Hong Kong stations.

Grade Pump Price HK$ / Litre
Shell FuelSave Diesel 12.35
Shell FuelSave Unleaded 16.85*
Shell V-Power 17.79*

http://www.shell.com.hk/home/content...s/price_board/

What about most expensive in the WHOLE WORLD?

Probably in a very remote area with scarce supplies. Some sources indicate fuel is most expensive in places like Eritrea.

In Europe, Turkey, Italy, Netherlands and Norway usually have the highest prices.

Turkey has insane fuel prices, you have to remember that average incomes there are much lower than in the Netherlands or Norway.
